Our very own Karla Robinson was featured in the news in Hampton Roads! This time it was to share an easy and delicious recipe for Peach Cobbler using fresh local fruit.
On July 9th, she was asked to share her know-how on WTKR News Channel 3’s Coast Live.
Karla shared some great tips and tricks about peaches, including:
- The different types of peaches you might receive in your Seasonal Roots order like the yellow, white, and flat peach!
- Always wait to wash your peaches and other produce because the moisture makes things go bad faster!
- Don’t put them in the fridge if they’re not ripe or if you don’t want them to ripen. They tend to dehydrate and the skin will wrinkle.
- Freeze them to prevent them from going bad. Peal and cut first. Perfect for smoothies!
- A quick tip for peeling: put the peaches in boiling water for 15-30 seconds, and then put them into ice cold water and the skin will come right off!
